I have to admit I love Dancing With The Stars partner photos. Oh, lord the cheese! It’s better than funnel cake at the county fair (oh which I am desperately craving right. now). And what’s better than regular DWTS photos? ALL STAR VERSIONS!
ABC just released the first batch of our favorite cheese ball professional dancers and our favorite desperately seeking a return to relevance ‘celebrities’!
Curiously, Maksim Chmerkovskiy (currently under fire for allegedly slapping former partner Hope Solo during last season’s rehearsals) and Kirstie Alley‘s photo is missing for the bunch! Kiristie tweeted: “We haven’t shot ours yet..We shoot next week..:) been gone”
Also, ABC is still stringing us along for who will be the lucky 13th dancer. I just heard a rumor that Kate Gosselin was added to the mix! Just kidding… but who doesn’t crave another dose of her insane bitchiness and the gossip that surrounds it?
Behold the glamour below! Let’s get judgey, shall we.
They’re ba-ack! The All Star cast of Dancing With The Stars was announced moments ago! And in a special twists, fans will get to chose the thirteenth all star to join the cast. The fans choices are Kyle Massey, Sabrina Bryan, or Carson Kressley.
Life may be a “Tripp” for Bristol Palin, but life’s not a beach at the moment, as her upcoming reality show, ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp‘, may be shut down over a new lawsuit filed by Kyle Massey and his brother Christopher.
Kyle (who met and bonded with Bristol onDWTS) and Christopher had worked with Bristol on a reality show that was going to feature Bristol and her son moving to L.A., with the Massey brothers helping her adjust to life in California. The tentative title was “Bristol-ogy 101“. Wait, really? Christopher was a star on ‘Zoey 101’. Seems a little lacking in creativity.
Friday night marked the kickoff of the new Dancing with the Stars Live in Las Vegas show at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino. The show will run for 12 weeks and will feature current and past pro dancers, former celebrity contestants and anyone else loosely related to the show and in need of a paycheck/publicity.
Last night while filming for her new reality show at Saddle Ranch in LA, Bristol decided to hop on a mechanical bull while wearing her favorite Jesus lovin’ t-shirt. And after she was thrown from the bull, spectator, Stephen Hanksyelled at a giggling Bristol “Did you ride Levi like that? Your mother’s a whore!” Wow – yikes! A furious Bristol immediately stormed over to the man who insulted her famous politically motivated mother, Sarah Palin, and got right in his face wanting to know why he said that!
The two got into a verbal sparring match in which Hanks referred to Sarah as “evil.” Bristol retaliated by asking “Is it because you’re a homosexual and that’s why you hate her?” Hanks confirmed, responding with: “Pretty much … and why’d you say I’m a homosexual?”
Well apparently for Bristol, that was all the answer she needed, and she snapped back – “Because I can tell you are,” leading to accusations that she is homophobic! The confusing and hard to decipher confrontation between two drunk fame whores continued for a couple more minutes until an enraged Bristol stormed out with her camera crew hot on her tail.
Hanks revealed his motivation for insulting Bristol and Sarah was that he “is not a fan of anything Palin,” and that Bristol “proved who she was last night, for sure.” He also assures us that he would do it again, because he is “very passionate about politics”!
In response to the verbal altercation, Bristol’s team released the following statement to TMZ: “The situation ended with no incident, and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded.” Her rep continued, defending her actions, by stating she “was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother. Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family.”
Well, now Bristol’s co-star, actor Kyle Massey, is calling the incident a “set up,” – through an anonymous source, of course! The source tells TMZ that Kyle “feels the producers of the show were behind it all, but that Bristol had NO part in it.” The source also goes onto to describe that Kyle, who initially believed he was signing up for a scripted show not a reality one, is unhappy “with the direction the show has taken,” and he thinks it “is now ‘sleazy’.”
However, the producers of the yet untitled show claim the incident was completely spontaneous and heckler Stephen Hanks agrees, describing that he was “oblivious to the cameras being there” and didn’t realize they were filming the confrontation! Suuuuure!
The video of the incident is below –
Thoughts on the incident – was it a producer set up or just a random occurrence? Do you think Bristol is homophobic or just defending her mother? Will you be watching her reality show?
The new series will follow Bristol, 20, and her son, Tripp, 2, as she moves from Alaska/Arizona to Los Angeles to work for a small charity in need and move in with Kyle, 19. Kyle’s older brother, Chris Massey, 21, will also appear on the show.
“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to,” said David McKillop, Executive Vice President, Programming, A&E Network and BIO Channel. “Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her and son and her friends the Massey brothers.”
If you recall, Kyle also appeared with Bristol on the previous season of DWTS, and the two have apparently since become best friends. “Bristol and Tripp have to move to Los Angeles for her new job, she decides to move in with the Massey brothers who are also about to realize how much their lives are about to change,” says the press release.
The new series is set to debut in late 2011.

Jennifer, 50, grabbed the mirrorball trophy on Tuesday, beating out fellow finalists Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin. Despite reports of the Tea Party getting behind Bristol, the 20-year-old was the first eliminated, with Disney star Kyle, 19, coming in second place.
Kyle was arguably the biggest surprise of the season. While most expected him to be out the first week, he was able to win the heart of many viewers and with his vastly improved dancing, was able to become the runner up.
Upon hearing she won the competition, Jennifer burst into tears. “I didn’t think I was going to compete tonight—and I’m really glad I did!” said Jennifer, having endured multiple injuries this season and almost quiting on more than one occasion.
“I had been asked for nine years and I said no out of fear,” she told TVGuide after the show. “I would’ve been robbed of this amazing experience had I not said yes and had the courage.”
